SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A Las Vegas-bound flight from Seattle has landed safely after it was diverted to Sacramento because of an electrical smell in the passenger cabin.
Sacramento International Airport spokeswoman Laurie Slothower says Alaska Airlines flight 606 landed before 5 p.m.
Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan says all 152 passengers left the aircraft without incident. There were no injuries.
A mechanic was checking out the aircraft, which departed Seattle at 3:08 p.m.
Egan says the crew diverted the Boeing 737 to Sacramento after the crew smelled a slight electrical odor. She says there was no smoke or fire.
She says passengers were being rescheduled to depart for Las Vegas on flights leaving Sacramento at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
